Kathy Clark, Associate Conference Minister and her family at the death of her 
sister-in-law and housemate Judy Jones. Please keep Kathy's sister Jacki, 
Judy's partner of 20 years, in your prayers. 

Our prayers are with Artis Johnson, pastor of Evergreen Congregational Church 
UCC, Beachton, GA as he recovers from knee surgery complicated by diabetes. 

We continue to pray for Tim Downs as he continues his recovery from surgery on 
August 1,2011.

Our thoughts and prayers were with 
Mike Grello's family and friends at the 
TAP graduation. He would have 
graduated with this TAP group had he 
lived. Mike is seated on left in photo. 
Mike was remembered as a larger than 
life figure, not just because of his 
commanding presence, but also 
because of his intelligence, commitment 



to critical thinking and to social justice, his deep faith, and for his willingness to 
speak truth to power with regard to all of the above.

New Media Project examines 
church's use of emerging 
technologies 
Just three months into its 
launch, the New Media Project 
at Union Theological Seminary 
has already gained footing in 
exploring improved ways in 
which pastors and lay leaders 
might use new technologies to 
strengthen their communities. 



Is Training Available? 




PROGRESSIVE 

RENEWAL' 



The TAP group truly missed him during 
the study of Hebrew Prophets and 
Social Transformation because they 
knew his contributions in this area would 
have been great. He will be dearly 
missed by his family, the TAP group and 
the Garden of Grace congregation. 



We ask for prayers for all students and 
teachers for a safe and successful 
school year.
